new gas chromatograph in laboratory of analytical chemistry

In August 2018 our laboratory of analytical chemistry purchased a brand new gas chromatograph, mass spectrometer Shimadzu GCMS-QP2020, equipped by a thermal desorption unit TD-30, which is used for analysis of emissions of organic substances.


The spectrometer has a superior sensitivity for organic substances in orders of micro-grams per kg of sample. The system is mainly used for analysis of volatile organic substances (VOC) and condensable substances (FOG) according to the requirements of automotive standard VDA 278, but also for emission measurement of polymer samples to investigate additive system, smell, NIAS (not-intentionally added substances in plastics) etc.

Determination of phthalic acid esters according to requirements of CPSC

In June 2018 analytical laboratory ITC accredited new procedure for determination of phthalic acid esters in consumer products according to requirements of CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) No. CPSC-CH-C1001-09.4. New standard came in force on April 25, 2018 and released old one No. CPSC-CH-C1001-09.3.

More information concerning phthalate testing are available here

Analytical laboratory had implemented new methods for testing of volatile organic compounds (VOC) from car interior parts according to Hyundai and Toyota requirements, namely

Hyundai Engineering Standard - MS300-55 - Determination of volatile organic compounds from moulded parts in the vehicle interior


Toyota Engineering Standard TSM 0508G – Volatile component measurement method using sampling bag

Tests are using sampling bags for emission tests, followed by chromatography determination of emitted substances.

Personal protective equipment

Products certification, CE » Conformity assessment (CE)

Personal protective equipment (PPE) is subject to compulsory conformity assessment with regard to safety before marketing in the Czech Republic. Basic requirements for PPE are defined in the Regulation (EU) 2016/425 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 March 2016 on personal protective equipment and repealing Council Directive 89/686/. According to the risk analysis PPE are divided into 3 categories with the prescribed methods of conformity assessment. Categories with higher risk levels (categories 2 and 3) require compulsory notified body. In the case of simple types (category 1) the manufacturer may perform the EU conformity assessment itself without presence of the authorised person. All PPE must bear the CE mark and the manufacturer or its authorised representative issues the EU declaration of conformity.

  • Conformity assessment by the Notified Body No. 1023 according to the requirements of the Regulation (EU) 2016/425 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 March 2016 on personal protective equipment and repealing Council Directive 89/686/EEC , laying down the technical requirements for personal protective equipment
    • Assessment of the PPE of category I
      For the simple personal protective equipment in the first category it is sufficient for the manufacturer or the importer to assess the conformity. The accredited testing laboratory or certification authority can be requested to carry out the tests and their evaluation. The Notified Body (NB) does not undertake such evaluations.
    • Assessment of the PPE of the categories II and III
      For the PPE in the second category, its manufacturer or importer provides, prior to the commencement of its serial production and introduction to the market a conformity assessment for the type of the Personal Protective Equipment through the EU type examination by the Notified Body. For the PPE in the third category the manufacturer or the importer shall provide the EU type examination in the same manner as for the PPE in the second category and additionally they will undertake periodic annual inspections of Personal Protective Equipment produced.
  • Testing PPE in the Accredited Laboratory No. 1004 and No. 1004.3
  • Granting licences for the voluntary certification mark “ITC certified quality
    ITC grants a license for the use of the quality mark, which is granted to the products where high standard of safety and quality parameters has been proved by certification and where meeting the prerequisites of the producer for continuous quality compliance has been proved through inspection visits.
  • Standardization services (standardization) and technical information.
  • Certification of management systems (ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001)
  • Technical inspection


  • Institute for Testing and Certification, Inc. is notified as the Notified Body No. 1023 for conformity assessment of the following personal protective equipment (PPE):
  • PPE for protection of eyes
  • PPE for protection of hands
  • PPE for protection of body
  • PPE for protection of legs
  • PPE for sport activities (including hockey helmets and head protectors for fighting sports)
